Have many things in the oven right now. finally have looked into adoption! The first meeting we can attend isn't until March, but it ironically falls on a Wednesday during spring break, so I don't have to miss class! That must mean something right?
I also had my first appointment with the dietitian at the bariatric center yesterday! I had no idea that when I went in there I would be weighed in and it would be the weight they used to qualify me for surgery! Luckily I wore heavy clothes and threw a sweater on at the last minute cause I barely squeaked into qualifying! Now I just have to hope that they accept my doctors appts weight s from 5 years ago. The lady at the insurance co helper seems to think it is worth a try, so it looks like I am in full speed mode to get the band too.
The dietician said I should start eating like I am on the band. I think since I have a couple months, I am going to try and grasp one thing at a time. Right now, that means getting rid of carbonated beverages! This is going to be harder than me than any food as I am addicted to pop like drug addict! I use caffeine as a crutch all the time!!! I will need to plan ahead, but I also going to tell myself to not worry so much about the money I spend on coffee drinks for a little while... I wish it wasn't the case, but I honestly need caffeine right now to get by.... :( Working full time, going to school full time, being a mom, etc... its just too much sometimes.
